AUSTIN, Texas — A third person wanted in connection to a shooting where one person died and three others were injured was arrested on Saturday, June 18, according to the Williamson County Sheriff's Office.

Devin Vasquez-Pachehco was taken into custody in Hays County without incident, according to the WCSO. Two other suspects involved in the June 12 shooting were arrested days earlier. 

One of the suspects, identified as Stephen Sanchez, was found at a local hospital with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. He was arrested for murder and taken to the Williamson County Jail. 

On June 16, Xelso Jesus Mora-Vazquez, another suspect, was arrested in a joint effort involving multiple agencies. Mora-Vazquez was arrested on a murder warrant and also taken to the Williamson County Jail.

The Austin Police Department (APD) and the WCSO responded to the incident around 7:20 p.m. in the 12600 block of Oro Valley Trail after receiving a report about a shooting.

Upon arriving, officials found a vehicle had crashed into the backyard of a residence. Three people were found in the vehicle with gunshot wounds, according to the WCSO. The driver of the vehicle, identified as 16-year-old Adrian Murillo Curiel of Cedar Park, was pronounced dead at the scene. The two others were taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds.

An investigation by the WCSO found that three suspects met with the victims and resulted in a confrontation, which then led to multiple shots being fired. All three suspects fled the scene after the shooting. 

The WCSO said the criminal investigation remains active.
